Abstract

Sexual functions and behaviour are complex processes occurring at the level of neural and vascular systems. They are closely connected with metabolic processes, and the whole of this system is controlled by sex hormones and neurotransmitters. Basing on the literature and the findings of my own research studies, I present in the paper the up-to-date opinions on how and when sex hormones and neurotransmitters correlate with sexual functions and behaviour. The paper shows how hormones and neurotransmitters influence both male and female sexuality; and how hormones influence erectile dysfunction and sexual pathologies. It also describes the influence of hormonal substitution on human sexuality and general condition.
